Changing where projects are stored#

NOTE: We recommend putting /opt/wakari and /projects on the same filesystem. If the project and conda env directories are on separate filesystems then more disk space will be required on compute nodes and performance will be worse.

To make aen-compute service use a different directory than /projects to store your AEN projects:

  1. Modify the /opt/wakari/wakari-compute/etc/wakari/wk-compute-launcher-config.json file:

    "projectRoot" : "/nfs/storage/services/wakari/projects",

    NOTE: The directory /nfs/storage/services/wakari/projects specified as projectRoot must already exist for this command to resolve properly.

  2. Restart the AEN compute service:

    sudo service wakari-compute restart
